Wilko Johnson

It's been thirty years now since pub rock heroes Dr. Feelgood first got together, centered around one Wilko Johnson, whose distinctive, angular guitar playing offered a roadmap for the nascent punk movement. The axeman parted company with the band in 1977 and went on to pursue a solo career of his own, but old habits die hard. Fresh from supporting The Stranglers on their March UK tour, he arrives in Tokyo to mark the Japanese release of Oil City Confidential, Julien Temple's documentary about the early years of Dr. Feelgood. A half-hour digest of the film will be screened prior to the show itself, to help get people in the mood.
